Bradley Beal suffers leg injury, carried off court (Video)

Bradley Beal injuryBradley Beal had to be carried off the court Friday after suffering what appeared to be a left knee injury in the fourth quarter of the Washington Wizards-Minnesota Timberwolves game.

Beal, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft, went to set a screen and somehow hurt his leg in the process. He tried to get up but struggled to move, and he had to be carried off the court by teammates.

It looked like Beal may have bumped knees, which is often extremely painful. Coach Randy Wittman apparently indicated after the game that that is what happened.

This tweet is from Wizards reporter Michael Lee:

The Wizards later said Beal’s X-ray was negative. He is scheduled to have an MRI on Saturday.

Beal had 14 points in 26 minutes in the 120-98 loss. Russell Westbrook and Al Horford had bad injury news revealed on Friday. Hopefully Beal’s name won’t be added to the list.

Wizards beer ad briefly features 19-year-old Bradley Beal (Picture)

Those of you in the D.C. area who enjoy having a few beers before watching your favorite team play were treated to a great special from the Washington Wizards on Saturday night. As you can see from the advertisement above, the Wizards were running a promotion where $25 got you a ticket and access to $2 Budweisers for several hours before Washington’s game against the Boston Celtics.

Sarah Kogod of D.C. Sports Bog pointed out that there was one small issue with the original advertisement. The player who was used to promote the “Bar Tour” was 19-year-old Bradley Beal. If he’s not old enough to drink himself, he probably shouldn’t be used to help the team sell $2 beers. The Wizards quickly realized this and had him removed from the ad, which they said was created by partner company TiqIQ.

Fortunately for the Wizards, $2 beers at a sporting event sell themselves. I highly doubt the 19-year-old persuaded anyone.
